Client Feedback
"We asked BGP to prepare a technical due diligence assessment for a potential investment in the cultured meat space. We were very much impressed by the quality of the BGP team, the thorough way of working, the valuable and up-to-date insights they provided and the open way of communication. 

The assessment has helped us in better understanding the challenges of the company in this quickly evolving industry and in structuring a transaction. In many ways BGP outperformed our expectations and we are looking forward to working with them again."
